Paper Characteristics: Metallic Paper Finish

The glimmering metallic paper finish comes from the MICA coating that is applied to paper during the manufacturing process. MICA is a natural stone mineral that contains small, shiny flakes.  The stone is ground down to form MICA powder.  The MICA powder is then applied to paper during the manufacturing process.  This shimmering pigment looks like a very fine glitter and can be produced in a vast selection of pearlescent colors.

Benefits of Metallic Paper Finish

Not only does the MICA coating add a glimmering finish, but the metallic paper finish can also improve water resistance and makes the paper more receptive to ink being applied.  Options include acid free, elemental chlorine free, and lignin free, making the paper suitable for archival purposes.

The metallic surface can be developed for use on a wide variety of printing technology including offset, ink jet, laser, and toner digital printing equipment. Excellent printability for your creative project.

Add some pizzaz, metallic printing paper is extremely versatile and can be used in various applications including: invitations, greeting cards, menus, announcements, luxury packaging, brochures, stationery, promotional material, book covers and gift bags.
